I'd agree, the game's cheesy. But this guy's got issues...

Hmm...

Such a game might be interesting if it could interface with rollers. On second thought, "virtual turns" on the computer might cause a dangerous conditioned response while on rollers.

maelstrom posted this game thing were you use the bike to control the guy on snowboard/skis/bike/motorcycle/atv/etc. Pedal faster and the guy accelerates, lean right the guy leans right and so on and so on.

It looked pretty cool but I forgot to bookmark the link.

I think TacX or some company likes that makes videos that go with the trainers they sell, so you can get a bit of entertainment while cycling (I guess).

what a waste of oxygen that guy is. Yep... I ride in the middle of the road oblivious to all traffic around me with my caravan in tow.

Maybe the game will make some young person want to try the real thing.

Maybe this review will make lots of young people not talk to the tool who wrote it.

I couldn't think of anything more boring than a cycling video game, even if it did have a bike interface.

As for the bombast in the first paragraph - ignore it. I don't think this person is a major player in forming public opinion. He's just trying to add a bit of spice to a review of an otherwise dull game. Pity he couldn't make the rant funny, but I guess the site would have to pay extra for someone with writing talent.

Not to offend anyone but this guy is a video game analysist, you wonder what America's population is growing more obese by the year....This guy has some issues with bikers and probably hasn't been on a bike. I rate him a fat slob who really doesn't do much all day if you ask me.
